I heard that interview last night. I was enraged but not surprised. He wants to keep the gravy train going for as long as he can plus, he's most likely in his 60's so he figures that by the time the planet is complete F'd he'll be dead so he doesn't care. He kept saying that families can't afford for their power to be so high saying that wind and solar electricity costs 21 cents more than coal fired electricity at 4 cents. That's funny because if you have solar you can actually be selling power back to the grid and thus offsetting the cost, Oh, that;s right, too many states are in the pocket of the fossil fuel industry and have ended rebates and subsidies on solar power for homes and curb how much power can be sold back to the grid per house hold. They don't have that problem in Germany where most homes use solar, there are lots of wind turbines and they gladly buy back any excess power created by someone's solar array.
Gets me repubs crying the Rich pay 70% of taxes..lets be fair- but if the middleclass got paid better we'd be Paying a larger% . Inequality of Wealth is the Big Reason these criminals do pay so much...And They Are Crying !! Greedy Scumbags !
He needs to prove that carbon dioxide is not a pollutant. He should tie a plastic bag over his head and just breath that good carbon dioxide for 5 minutes or so. Then we will believe him.
Everything this baboon said was a lie, from the 4000 scientists he dug up in his back garden, to the 29 states on his side who joined his lawsuit in defense of state rights, not the license to pollute that this creep wants. And no, coal isn't cheaper than renewable when you add up the real costs in land degradation, reclamation and health. And worse of all, is that he feels that coal is the only thing that the poor can afford! Decent wages would solve the problem of what the poor can afford: an environment not polluted by coal, and not getting black lung, emphysema and asthma!
Murray, fossil fuels profits, climate change denial, Koch & friends buddies, radical libertarian gutting of environmental regulations, Trump. What part of the money is hard to follow?
Listen, these rich men don't care about the environment because they truly believe that the end times are coming. These religious extremists are just as bad as any closed minded lunatic terrorist, the only difference is the path they use to destroy. Religion is the cancer where all this ignorant putrefaction comes from. https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Dominionism
What is he going to do about the competition from cheaper and much cleaner natural gas? They always claim that they support free market and free market is not going to opt for more expensive and dirtier coal.
Well plant life can not live without carbon dioxide. We need oxygen that plants release when it takes it in. People are under the assumption coal the biggest carbon polluter when its the gasoline you burn in the car the biggest coal power plants very small compared to that just like melting the wires and plastic to make solar panels coal power plants is very small compared to polluters compared to those toxic chemicals being released. Solar panels break down hard to dispose of not only that not efficient enuf to supply 25 percent of the power grid power without destroying allot of natural habitat cause of the space it takes up. Wind power has issues too other then fact you need a strong wind to produce a continuous supply they are known for killing birds and other wild life and insects. They even known for killing bees that we need for plant life. To do away with coal means you must resort to other means of energy like nuclear that waste is far worse danger to people then coal you can say what about natural gas well its a fossil fuel with the clean air systems they make for coal its just as clean as natural gas but also allot less expensive. That what keeps your electric bills from being up close to thousand of dollars a month. A diesel or gas driven generator can burn up too two tankers of fuel an hour and not supply entire city of new york its power. So in United states they turned to out sourcing power to other countries buying power from other countries that do not have as strict regulations as us and yes buying coal power from a more toxic source. So in turn we are hurting the environment worse other countries are beefing up there supply to supply us cause are power grid can not keep up with the demand without coal and national gas is allot more costly then buying from other countries that still use coal with less restrictive emissions. Not only that ur destroying a big source of energy we have using natural gas driving up the price for those that need it to heat with and making a monopoly with the gas giants being only ones that can produce energy in the united states increasing their profits. Natural energy not came far enough to supply the demand we need its pollutes allot making the devices to harness it and not efficient enough and stable enough to run even one city like new York if we combine all the natural energy we produce. Fossil fuels still the fuels we need natural gas like coal fossil fuel and when you look at pollution rush hour traffic in new york creates more pollution in one day the power plant ran on coal in a entire month. Think about that when driving your car to work. Or leaving it run so you can use the air conditioning in your car or extra energy you use running air conditioning in ur home that increasing the demand and use of fossil fuels. I worked in the energy market for many years were power generation was its income. Seen wind turbines, water turbines that are not efficient enuf , know the gas turbines allot can not be ran in the united states do to the pollution but can be ran in Canada and Mexico also china with out any pollution control devices and that natural has driven power generations not coal. So although we must seek cleaner energy we still must not push out the energy we need before the market is perfected enough for the change or we will be causing more harm by out sourcing the power to other nations that still pollute into the same environment creating worse pollution. Yes making solar panels melting them down making wiring all the process is producing allot pollution with panels breaking down too quickly not being efficient enuf also the space it takes to supply huge volume of power kills wild life and plant life. You have look at all the bad not just small portion to these regulations. Remember countries like china has regulations but they are not enforced and not as strict as the united states at all. Were better off for us and environment of the world to leave it alone till the science can perfect natural energy better and get are grid were it can run on above 25 percent even 10 percent natural energy we can not even produce that much natural energy or clean energy. To call natural gas and nuclear clean a insult.
Well, I am NOT a scientist but.....I am sick and tired of hearing this discussion. If you are not a scientist, you have two choices: a) Have enough sense to listen to what 98% of the scientists are saying - or b) Shut up!!!!!
It is not. It is a natural part of the environment. Without it there would be no life. But progressive leftist O'Bama/Clinton/Bernie voters will believe any cock and bull humans suck narrative that comes down the pipe.
